Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.8

Nikon AF-S 24-70 f/2.8

Nikon AF-P 30-700 f/4.5-5.6

Which one is best?

I agree with the previous comments. The 85 mm f/1.8 got the best results. The 24-70 f/2.8 did well too.

Yes, I also prefer to shoot lower ISO and longer shutter speeds on a tripod at night. Turn on Noise Reduction, with the camera taking a second blank image, if necessary.
